tie-dye tissue paper. From the comments: "A great permanent dye choice would be dye that one makes by placing the insides of spent markers in alcohol for a day or so. I also just saw a tutorial that uses water instead of alcohol, but don't think that would be as permanent." tie dye, tissu paper, tye dye, kid

Materials Paper Colored Chalk Salt Small Jars --We’re out of the baby-phase so no baby food jars in this house, but if you have them, they are ideal for this project. I found some old plastic craft jars I hadn’t used, so went with that. I highly recommend using glass as the chalk dust sticks less. sand art, color, jar, craft projects, rainbow, kid crafts, parti, salt, chalk art

Potato Prints. Cut a potato (any variety will do) in half, and draw a shape onto the flesh with a pencil. Then, using a utility knife with a thin blade, carve around the outline of the pencil design, and cut away the background to a depth of 1/4 inch. Mix gouache paints with a little water, then apply the paint directly onto the design with a brush; or dip the potato into a dish of paint as though using a stamp pad. paper, potato stamp, potatoes, interest craft, print idea, stamps, potato print, diy
